Re: Community: A New Name for “Open Source” Collections
"Open Source implies allowing free redistribution of the work, giving access to the source material used to make it, and allowing people to use the work to make derivatives."
If you look at my work you will see that this is exactly what I do with my poetry, Literature and scientific papers; free access, free use, and free reuse; only requirement is that derivative works have to also be freely distributed.
With 'artificial intelligence', the day will soon come when computer code will be treated exactly as human writing is treated or will cyborg communities be discriminated against because they are not completely human? In fact my new idea for a book (at least I see no interest in the greedy corporate/publishing community for the concept of dynamic books) is for an Object-Oriented type of writing; just like the computer code which takes its name.
We should be encouraging the use of the Creative Commons license as this will help place more nails in the coffins of the corrupt intellectual property industry. Less restriction fosters more creativity regardless of what the material is called.
